Author(s): Dr. Rohit Kumar
The modern world is becoming more and more competitive everyday. The quality of performance has become the main factor for personal and individual progress. Every parent desires that his children climb the ladder of performance to as high a level as possible. The desire for a high level of achievement exerts a lot of pressure on students, teachers and schools in the educational system itself. It always appears as if the whole system of education revolves round the academic achievement of students, though various other results are also expected from the system. Any achievement is the end-product of all educational efforts. The major concern of all educational efforts is to see that the learner ultimately achieves something. All academic achievements are defined in different ways by different authors. This refers to any desirable learning that is observed in the students. As we are aware, any behavior that is learnt may come with in the scope of achievement. Learner achievement means the status of learner with respect to attained skill or knowledge as compared with other learners or with schools adopted standards. Similarly, Yoga helps the students in all the Academic Achievements. The art of Yoga is one of the ancient heritages of India. This is the greatest contribution of our country to the world and its inhabitants. The practice of Yoga would directly contribute to human resource development and improvement of an individual in the quality of life by developing their over all fitness (Physical, mental, emotional as well as spiritual). We are aware that Yoga is the art and science of maintaining physical and mental wellbeing which has its origin in India and is among the most ancient yet vibrant living traditions getting increasingly popular today in the whole world. Yoga is an instrument of self-evolvement and enlightenment and a potent stress buster through physical and mental well-being. This also enhances the quality of life by improving motor ability. The purpose of this study is to find out the analysis and effect of yogasanas on academic performance. The achievement of the purpose, a sample of 70 high school students were randomly selected from Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, Ludhiana District. The students were divided into two groups of thirty five in each group. Out of tese, one group was utilized as the control group and the other as experimental group. The experimental group was given yoga training for twelve weeks. Their academic performance of the subjects were collected from the office records. The collected data was analyzed statistically by computing mean, standard deviation and ‘t’ test. The resultant hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of confidence. Highly significant improvement was found in academic performance of the experimental group due to yoga training and its results were recorded.
